Special Issue "Applications of Remote Image Capture System in Agriculture"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2020.
Interests: agricultural sciences; computer science in agronomy; decision sciences
Interests: computer vision; image processing in agriculture; pattern recognition
In recent years, image capture systems are increasingly being used in agricultural engineering as a means to obtain information of interest from the crops, the soil, and the environment. Remote imaging systems are especially relevant, since they allow acquiring frequent and high-resolution information of great extensions. This Special Issue aims to address the applications of digital photography for the management of water resources, energy, pest and disease control, etc. in agriculture. The concept of remote image capture systems includes different types of devices (from satellites and drones, to digital cameras on the ground integrated in wireless sensor networks), different types of spectral information (from standard RGB images, to multispectral and hyperspectral images), different types of applications (water management, pest detection, yield estimation, plant monitoring, etc.), and different types of techniques (in the fields of image capture systems, image processing and analysis, computer vision and pattern recognition, decision support systems, etc.). Manuscripts covering these topics are invited to participate in the present Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
